fred shand, quilter
February 3, 2011
just the other day i was talking to a friend who quilts, and she mentioned that she is growing a little tired of her regular angular designs and expressed her desire to explore some more organic, free form shapes. i, myself have never done any sort of quilting, but i can really appreciate all the work that goes into each one. i know it’s no simple task… people spend months on a quilt, sometimes years.
a few days after speaking with my friend, i saw these by fred shand, an english artist that anthropologie is featuring. definitely not your typical quilter, she uses a variety of methods from silk-screening to painting to sewing and quilting in order to make each one-of-a-kind piece.
